Abstract

One of the most interesting books about J.S. Mill’s political and social philosophy is Bruce Baum’s PhD thesis. His book is one of the very few that seriously try to lift to the surface economic freedom and distributive justice in Mill’s social theory and to relate liberty and equality in this philosopher’s social thought.

Key words: Social expediency, democracy, working class, competition.
